La Palma weather chaos: Volcano ERUPTION FEARS as torrential rain sparks LANDSLIDES
The General Directorate of Security and Emergency declared a state of emergency yesterday and told islanders to brace for two inches of rainfall per hour over the rest of the day.
The east of the island has been hit by dangerous landslides which have caused power outages and blocked roads, leaving locals stranded.
A school in Santo Domingo, in the north of the island, had to be evacuated because of the swelling waters after a staggering six inches of rain fell overnight, reports LaPalmaMeteo.
Average rainfall for the entire month of November was 2.8 inches last year.
